Why donate to Muscular Dystrophy Campaign when selling to CeX?

Muscular dystrophy is a condition that can affect anyone, irrespective of age, gender or race. It causes muscles weaken and waste away. Currently there is no known cure. Some children with muscular dystrophy die in infancy while others live into adulthood with only moderate disability.

In the last quarter of 2012 donations to Muscular Dystrophy totalled just under £3500.  You can help us grow this, by donating when selling to CeX. If you donate 100% of the value we’ll top it up by 10% and we pass on all donations to CeX Charities in full.
